Public confidence in the Bank of England has slumped to an all-time low in another setback for its Governor, Andrew Bailey.

For the first time, more people are dissatisfied than satisfied with Threadneedle Street’s efforts at controlling inflation, according to the Bank’s quarterly inflation attitudes survey.  Just 25pc of respondents said they were pleased with the Bank’s performance, the lowest since the survey began in 1999.

The public is also the most pessimistic about inflation on record, anticipating price increases of 4.6pc in the shops over the next 12 months.

The results turn up the heat on Mr Bailey and the Monetary Policy Committee, which is expected to bump interest rates to 1.25pc at its meeting next week.

UK inflation reached 9pc in the year to April, the highest reading in 40 years and four-and-a-half times the Bank’s 2pc target.

UK & European stocks fell further as investors reacted to the European Central Bank’s latest policy decisions and a hotter-than-expected U.S. inflation print.

The dollar rose to a near four-week high against a basket of currencies, after data showed U.S. consumer prices accelerated in May, suggesting the Federal Reserve may have to continue with interest rate hikes through September to combat inflation.

Oil slipped as China imposed new Covid-19 lockdown measures and U.S. consumer prices rose more than expected, but crude prices remained on track for another weekly gain due to solid demand for fuels in the United States.

Gold prices fell more than 1% after a jump in U.S. inflation bolstered expectations that the Federal Reserve would continue aggressive interest rate hikes, boosting the dollar and sending bond yields higher.
